Lacanche ranges - in their own words, " exude purpose. "
Sure they're a bit pricey, but you could always add some wheels and drive it around town when you're not cooking up a storm.
"Lacanche, a little village in the hills above Beaune, where the famous stoves bearing the village's name are manufactured. The company is firmly committed to combining the best of modern and traditional methods both in product design and working practice. And it has every reason to be proud of its legacy: the site dates back to the 18th century when a Burgundian gentleman by the name of Richard de Curtil decided to put the iron contained in his subsoil and the timber from his forests to good use by creating a foundry at Lacanche. In 1796, Jacques-Etienne Caumartin took control of the ironworks and the company remained in the hands of the Coste-Caumartin family until 1972."

I think the Lacanche would finish out her kitchen (starting at 11k for some models-doh) don't you?
